The Genuine 1940's Superman Comic Strip.

Exclusively from Hammacher Schlemmer, this is the genuine Superman comic strip clipped from a WWII-era newspaper and mounted in a framed display worthy of a four-color superhero. Superman famously debuted in Action Comics #1 in 1938 before his creators, writer Jerry Siegel and artist Joe Shuster, launched him into newspaper syndication in 1939. These strips from the "Golden Age of Comics" have been culled from 1940's Sunday newspapers and they retain the charming halftones and sometimes off-register colors of older newsprint, making each unique. Superman's newspaper adventures featured the familiar cast of allies and villains who appeared in the comic books, from Lois Lane to Lex Luthor, as well as the debut of such superhero tropes as the telephone booth quick-change. Each framed strip bears just one unique moment in the history of this iconic superhero. The comic is mounted in three layers of laser-cut mats that depict the Man of Steel's pentagonal "S" logo, framed in solid wood, and protected behind UV-blocking, non-glare acrylic. Strips will vary. 30" H x 25" W x 3" D. (8 lbs.)
